Re: Why Sunshine's SFRDs?
I don't mean this flippantly, nor do I intend any disrespect, but I'd suggest that you read the article again. The answers are in the article. The rebuilds were done over a period of time and have many subtle, and some not so subtle differences. In a nutshell, the Intermountain cars represent the early group or rebuilds. For example, look at ends, circulating fans, and the width of the solid strip at the top of the sides. The later rebuilds have significant differences from the early cars.
Kind regards, Rob Adams
